Fans of some NBA teams weren’t happy after defending NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard made his decision on signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.
But one owner of a L.A. coffee chain sent a message that Leonard has been prohibited from it nine locations within the city.
This ban goes along to his new teammate in forward Paul George.
The main reason why he placed the ban on the two star players and the Clippers organization — Leonard chose not to sign with their rival team, the Lakers.
No, we aren’t kidding. This is the actual image that came from the company’s Instagram story post.
From a report from the Eater Los Angeles magazine, the Alfred Coffee House has bans placed for Leonard, George, and people affiliated with the Clippers that are allegedly to be effective immediately.
With the bans now in place, here are some amusing reactions on the news from the coffee shop.
Aw boohoo Alfred Coffee, Kawhi Leonard & Paul George didn't sign with the Lakers. Let me play ya a song on the world's smallest violin. https://t.co/Gog2z9enIA— Justin Petschauer (@JPetschauer) July 8, 2019
I don't know much about anything but doesn't "Alfred Coffee" sound like a moderately successful basketball player from the 1950s?— Adam Burke (@atpburke) July 8, 2019
